## Study Notes

### Congruent Triangles

- When assigning points on a truss, we need to identify pairs of triangles that appear to be congruent.
- Basis for choosing pairs of triangles: congruent triangles have the same shape and size.

### Solving Corresponding Parts of Congruent Triangles

- When two triangles are congruent, their corresponding parts are equal.
- Example: ∆NIM and ∆ZER have 6 pairs of corresponding parts.

### Practice Exercises

- Example 5: identify congruent triangles, write statement of correspondence, and find measures.
- Example 6: identify congruent triangles, write statement of correspondence, and find measures.

### Geometry in Daily Life

- Geometry has numerous practical applications in daily life.
- Example: identifying objects around us that illustrate different theorems (e.g. congruent triangles).

### Performance Task

- Take a picture of an object or cut pictures from a magazine/newspaper that illustrates a theorem.
- Identify which specific part corresponds to the theorem and mark the congruent parts.
- Specify the theorem illustrated on the picture.
- Each picture properly labeled with correct theorem will be given 10 points.

### Illustrating Triangle Congruence

- Directions: identify vertices, angles, and sides of each triangle.
- Given ∆DRY ≅ ∆SOT, identify corresponding parts congruent to each given side or angle.

### Illustrating Congruence Postulates

- SAS, ASA, and SSS congruence postulates can be used to prove triangle congruence.
- Identify additional corresponding parts needed to make triangles congruent using specified congruence postulates.

This quiz discusses identifying congruent triangles in a truss structure, determining pairs of congruent triangles, and solving for corresponding parts of congruent triangles. Practice statements and measure calculations are included in the examples.
